Please feel free to forward to potential PhD students:

The School of Information Sciences, the iSchool at Illinois, is actively recruiting outstanding doctoral students who are interested in becoming partners in our world-renowned research and scholarship program. We encourage applications from students from all disciplinary backgrounds.

Admitted candidates in good standing are offered four years of funding in the form of research, teaching, and service assistantships, including tuition waivers and stipends.

The School's flexible program ensures that each student receives the intellectual guidance and experiences necessary to prepare them for vibrant research careers in a wide range of academic, business, and government settings.

We study how:
*	Information literacy enables participation in the knowledge society,
*	Data science opens new windows to knowledge,
*	History informs our identity and guides our information future,
*	Systems serve people,
*	Information is a vital human resource,
*	Libraries shape what we know and who we are.
